Adding perennials to your garden enables you to create stunning shows throughout the seasons. There is an almost endless supply of form, and colour to choose from, and one for almost every situation.

It is beat to plant your perennials in autumn and spring to give them time to settle in to the garden before the extremes of summer and winter. Water them in well, and keep the water up to them until they establish. As they settle in, they will become less needy and you can just relax and enjoy them.

African Daisies

These vigorous, well branched cultivars of African Daisies grow to form a rounded sub shrub with flowers from spring to autumn. Their compact habit lends well in pots and sunny borders, providing a nice pop of reliable colour where you need it.

African Daisies have been around the traps for time eternal, but the older varieties have been far surpassed by these new varieties. They have been bred for more flowers and vigour and they don’t disappoint. They are perfect for filling sunny spots.

Agastache

Agastache are a steadfast in our garden. We planted one variety ten years ago and our collection continues to grow. They are just so easy and offer so much reward. Agastache come in a great colour range. The blooms open above the foliage and sway beautifully in even the lightest breeze, creating lovely movement in the garden.

Aquilegia Clementine

Aquilegias are totally charming. Their soft foliage and beguiling blooms lend perfectly to cottage garden styling. They will even grow in containers so you can move them where you need a pop of colour. Their delicate beauty belies their tough nature, Aquilegia are surprisingly easy care.

Aquilegia are the perfect complement to spring flowering bulbs. The soft, fern like foliage of Aquilegias grows into its full, fabulous self just as that of the spring flowering bulbs begins to fade.

Begonias

No matter where you grow these Begonias, in sun or shade, they will give an amazing show. A great choice for patio pots, hanging baskets, edging plants or even indoors. The flowers bloom and bloom and the leaves are pretty as a picture.

Dalaya Dahlia

In pots or gardens, these bright, bicolour blooms make a great centrepiece. They flower forever, are well branched and have great mildew resistance.

Marguerite Daisies

Marguerite Daisies are garden classics. They flower and flower and flower and flower and flower! In fact they are in flower nearly all year, especially in warmer climes. They are useful for adding low maintenance colour in sunny spots.

Marguerite Daisies form neat mounds of fine, evergreen foliage. The main flush of flowers is spring and summer with spot flowering the rest of the year. The blooms are perfect for picking and will easily last a week or two in a vase.

Monarda

The butterflies, birds and bees love these flowers almost as much as gardeners do! Balmy Series Monarda are pocket rockets! These compact plants really pack a punch with their brightly coloured shaggy blooms.

Other perennials

Perennials are those fabulous plants you see and just fall in love with. Perennials add colour, structure and form to your garden beds.

There are a range of perennials on offer from evergreen (year round interest), semi evergreen (will remain evergreen in warmer climates, though don’t grow much through winter) and herbaceous (have a rest period during the year, usually winter where they die down to just a crown in dormancy before remerging in spring). Each type has major advantages in your garden beds. They are easy to use and each comes with detailed, easy to apply growing instructions.

Perennial Petunias

Perennial Petunias are perfect for adding a bright pop of colour to gardens, pots and hanging baskets. These new varieties have been carefully selected for their mounding habit and flowering prowess.

Perennial Petunias can be easily used as colourful garden fillers and don’t need a lot of care and will last a few years.

Perennial Purslanes

Peruvian Lilies

Peruvian Lilies (or Alstroemeria) offer terrific garden value. They flower for most of the year, soldiering on even after most of the perennials have faded.

Peruvian Lilies (Alstroemeria) are great for picking, pretty in pots and last for many years. The best way to pick them is to simply pull the stem, this will allow space for more flowers to grow and provide you with the longest possible stem. These plants are less than a bunch of flowers, will provide you with so much more, and they will last up to three weeks in a vase!

Phlox

Volcano phlox are flowering machines! Their sweet smelling blooms begin at the height of summer and continue until frost. They are mildew resistant and prosper in sun or part shade.

Summer Snapdragons

Summer Snapdragons provide continuous flowers throughout the heat of summer. The floral spires are lovely and bright and mix and match well. The plants have a well branched, uniform habit.
